Hands of Praise

June 27, 2013 — 2 Comments

Some time ago we did some art theory, and then put it all together on paper. I had a general idea, and wanted to help my wife with home-school.

The theme I choose was ‘hands of praise’, which was drawn from  Neh.8:6.

‘And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God, and all the people answered, “Amen, Amen,” lifting up their hands’ (ESV).


We used non-toxic acrylic  paint, post-it-notes and five sheets of butchers paper. We made circles with our hand prints, gradually moving from the outside in towards the centre. Once this was complete we used the post-it-notes to create the words hands & praise.

John Calvin wrote that ‘…..Thanksgiving, is the gratitude which ascribes to God the praise of all our blessings…..’ (‘Institutes’, II.8:392)….


A job well done.
